    Commenting on my own post, but I genuinely learnt something about my OWN car yesterday which prevented me from having to bail at the rollback check stopping point up the cross axles.

    I had just overheard a discussion that with stability control on, the ECU cuts power during wheelspin.

    Now, from sand driving at Walker Bay I have experienced this and know to disable it, but did not do so here as I did not think the same symptom would happen.

    When I was stopped on the hill by Rechardt it was actually not voluntarily. Just before that point, the wheels spun with wild abandon and the engine died under my foot and would not respond to the accelerator. There seems to be some time-out.

    So I thought, desperately, let me see if disabling the SC would make a difference.

    The XC60 pulled off from the same loose surface, moving forward ONLY, and continued through even deeper holes further up the hill without issue.

    I'll remember this trick for next time :-).

    So yes. It was a disadvantage if lockers was to be switched on manually.

    But it was a great day!

    I know that with 3 lockers on the H3 i can tacle any obsticle. Slow and controlled.
    That H3 were super at Berakah.

    Thanks everyone for a great day, had loads of fun and also learned a lot about my vehicle without using its offroad mode

    Have to admit i was quite suprized on the second obstacle how easily the XC90 went over it on the second attempt in offroad mode compared to normal mode, night and day difference!

    On my way out had a nice little adventure through the water hole, that got suprizingly deep halfway through haha, kleinbok in the XV also went through it, water rushing over the bonnet but out the other end like a champ hehe, bonus points for that i feel like

    Decided to do more obstacles after the water hole and got quite rocky, fortunately got through it unscathed.

    All in all great day out got to see some of my favourite offroaders in action, my suspiciouns were confirmed that the H9 should not be underestimated and i learned a lot about my vehicle.

    Only negative i would say is that i chickened out on the third obstacle when it was actually clearly doable with the soft roaders if you stick as far left as you would dare.

    Works on my phone. But, as I said, it only provides the option to download a zip file of the photos. Which I don't have time to do at the moment.
